Idly podi

This is a very different version of idly podi which my grandmother prepares. A nice aroma wafts the house when she prepares this. It has a different taste due to the addition of curry leaves in it. It goes well with idlies and dosas. 

Ingredients

Urad dhall - 1 cup

Chickpeas/ kadalai paruppu - 1/2 cup

Curry leaves - 3 sprigs

Red chillies - 4

Dhania seeds - 2 tablespoons

Asafoetida - 1/4 teaspoon

Salt 

Directions

Dry roast all the ingredients listed and powder them in a mixer-grinder.

Store in an airtight container.

Mix with oil or ghee and serve with idlies and dosais.
